Found at Brennans in Wisconsin. Not a huge imperial, but that makes it easy drinking.

SHIG (3555) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 24, 2012
Bottle: Poured a coppery amber with a cream off white head. Aroma is nice bitter hops, but can also pick out some citrus fruit and malts. Taste is a nice hops bitter up front, nice mix of fruit and malts mellow it a bit. Drank nicely overall and hide the alcohol well.

Bottle sample at Calgary beer fest. Clear amber color, white head. Nice floral aroma. Taste is not too bitter for a DIPA.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Brennan’s Country Farm Market in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear medium amber colored IPA with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates to a thin film top and some spotty lacing. Aroma of dark pitted fruits, citrus, and a hint of grapefruit. Taste is medium to full bodied, fruity profile flavor with some noble bittern hops, hint of grapefruit zest and some light toffee. Finish is semi-sweet with a medium mild bitterness that slowly disappears with a little alcohol bite.

pintbypint (2567) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012
341ml brown bottle. Golden pour, seems a bit unclear. Mid sized white cap that lasts a while. Nose has some sweet malt notes, caramel and pleasant fruity and citrus hops, mostly sweet and orangey. Taste has grain and caramel at the front, grass and earthy hop midway. Quick bitter finish, lingering grapefruity hops, lighter notes of pine and grass stick around. A bit of alcohol shows up late. Overall decent, tasty, but not super aggressive.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Pours lightly hazed amber orange with a large long lasting beige head. Aroma of resin, pine needles, wood, herb, grapefruit, dark fruit, lemon, not sure of the hops used in this one, but it reminds me of Sorachi Ace. Taste has lots of fruity and malty sweetness but still a hefty bitter finish, kind of a weird metallic bitter finish.

mjg74 (2490) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Bottle from Hamilton MT. Interesting impy IPA here. This brew is quite fruity with a good deal of sweetness. Not really super hoppy. Seems to have some serious Belgian qualities to it. Not great to style, but a pretty tasty beer, none the less.

deyholla (6514) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a lot of sweet citrus with a hint of bitter grapefruit and a backing spiced bread note. Flavor has more of a pure citrus note upfront that is joined by bitter grapefruit and has the same spiced bread backing. Unique.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle:   Orange side of amber, slightly hazy and dirty, thin to moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Candied citrus peel, slightly pithy and even a bit fruity.   Has a minor cheese aspect... interesting.   Hoppy up front yet not biting, sweet pithy and candied citrus peel.   Sweetness falls of quick, not too bright or sharp.   That cheese aspect somewhat reminds me of the first Mirror Mirror from Deschutes.   Somewhat odd to get this.   Body and moutfheel are moderate.   Finishes soft, low bitterness, somewhat sweet citrus bits, but also a little cheesy.   Thanks for the bottle Bob!

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a copper body, thin gold edges and a slight haze while supporting a thin white head. The aroma offers up pine hops, sweet malts and sort of a caramel toffee note. Not a very hoppy aroma. The taste is big with pine hop bitterness and hop resin that is filled around the edges with a less than desirable sweet red apple note as well as grapefruit and floral hops. This is nice and hoppy and resiny with bitterness but the ester and floral and citrus notes just don’t fit in with the sticky pine hoppiness.
